Great place to visit for a few hours. Took us approx 1.30hrs in order to get round the whole fort including the tunnels. Wouldn’t recommend if your claustrophobic but would be ideal for families!

Lots to see but uneven underfoot obviously so if you are unsure of foot - take care. Lots to see, the audio phones were great.

We went on a Monday afternoon and admission was free (on Mondays only). Incredible tunnels and a good audio guide. Fascinating history of the two sieges. The views from the top are amazing. Wear sturdy shoes as the paths are uneven, especially outside!

It is about a 30-40 minute stroll from Es Castell and it is well sign posted. The museum is open from 9.30 until 3pm and an audio guide is well worth it for at least one of your group. A lot of the self guided...More
